I needed the job, and was delighted to get the chance

I enjoyed working with them. They need to hire more well spoken people in Karachi region. And less of their current employees family & friends.

Good environmental protection job with best paid moreover, food and way of communication with all colleagues are amazing in BC. However, senior positions are more cooperative with juniors. British Council doesn't look any discrimination regarding age, cread or racism.

Productive work place but untrained management

I have found many problems at venue that seniors did not have any knowledge about safety and security. Also some administrative and management issues I registered but still not receiving any response on my request. Anyway the Staff in Pakistan is untrained and only have peace of paper that use for announcement and also to organise the venue.

Productive & Utililized

We normally enter at the very dawn of the day in our allocated institutes. The day typically is tough but extremely utilized and productive at full length till the eleventh hour. I have learnt the systematic and organized discipline there. Management was in touch with the invigilators and in turn we look after the candidates for any solution they need from us during the exam hours. The workplace culture was smooth and friendly but very firm. The hardest part of the job was the detection of the examinee for any fraudulent activities at the time of entrance or during the exam hours. The most enjoyable part is calling all the waiting candidates towards the hall by their reporting time when half of them don;t listen the floaters.

Pros

Short timings

Cons

No lunch

Pros

Require Hard work And Patience.

working for the CIE examinations at the venue is a tuff job. You have many responsibilities during examinations. This job requires patience and physically fit person because you have to stand all along the examinations to keep an eye on the students while keeping it quiet.
